As one of the development concepts, green development highlights the importance of harmony between man and nature. Under the 13th Five-year Plan (2016-2020), heightened attention will be given to an eco-friendly approach to development in order to preserve harmony between man and nature. The process of designating functional regions will be accelerated. Efforts will be stepped up to promote low-carbon and circular development, conservation and efficient utilization of resources, and environmental protection, and safeguard China’s ecological security. It is imperative to build an economic structure conducive to green, low-carbon and circular development, and incorporate an eco-conservation perspective into every facet of economic, political, cultural, and social development. Our goal is: the land we inherit will remain blessed with green mountains, clear waters, and fresh air.
